James Lorimer Ilsley (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Mr. ILSLEA :

No special arrangements have been made and no information is available to indicate that credit-worthy farmers cannot obtain adequate credits at reasonable interest rates in order to enable them to play their part in the essential task of food production in this country. The chartered banks are believed to be fully cognizant of the important part agriculture is playing in Canada's war effort and to be granting short-term loans to farmers regularly in the usual course of their business. Long-term and mortgage credit is available through the facilities of the Canadian farm loan board.
